Situated about a half hour northeast of Dallas, Wylie is one of Texas's fastest growing communities. In 2016, NerdWallet recognized Wylie as the number one Best Small City for Families. It made the list again in 2017. A year before, Money Magazine named it the 25th Best Place to Live in the Nation.
It's historic downtown is a nod to its long history dating back to it's incorporation in 1887. Back then, Wylie was known as a lively stop along the railroad earning it the title "Wide Awake Wylie."
Today, development never ceases. Soon a Collin College campus will take its place as Wylie's newest jewel.
